Lilian's business is buying, raising and selling pigs. She started out helping her mom to raise pigs that she had bought. She currently has seven years experience in her field.

Lilian formed this group to request a loan to buy more piglets and concentrated pig feed. In the future, she would like to work more productively and make more profits. The other members of this group raise farmyard animals and work in commerce.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
